This measure sought to increase the current sales tax rate by .75 percent which would go towards road maintenance projects in the city. The increased tax was expected to generate around $9 million a year for road projects. The city noted that road projects were back logged and the proposed tax increase was needed to get projects done and improve city roads.[2]
